First Line Fridays – 1.19.18

It’s First Line Friday time.  I’m having so much fun doing this each week! I hope you are having fun reading them. Today’s first line is taken from the book:

Love at the Fluff & Fold   By Kitty Bucholtz

Kitty Bucholtz

Wilfred Larson buttoned his shirt and glanced up at his doctor. 

This book is a sweet, small town romance with characters you can relate to.  Kitty is a friend of mine and I enjoy her writing and hope you will too.

In return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you choose in the comments below.  And then head on over to First Line Friday

Happy Reading,

First Line Fridays – 1.12.18

It’s First Line Friday time!  This week it’s a line from a book I recently read titled:

Where There’s Smoke

By Susan May Warren

And here it is:

She’d come three thousand miles to burn to death.

This is book one in Susan’s Montana Fire: Summer of Fire Trilogy.  I love her writing.  I couldn’t put the book down.  Now on to #2 and #3.

In return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you choose in the comments below.

First Line Fridays-1.5.18

It’s First Line Friday time!  This week it’s a line from a book I’m currently reading titled:

the story of WITH

A Better Way to Live, Love, & Create

by Allen Arnold

the story of with

This book blends storytelling and teaching, fusing allegory with application to help deepen your identity, intimacy and imagination with God.  I’m in the middle of it, so the entire impact is unclear, but already it’s spoken to my heart several times – with the evidence in how I have marked several sections to go over again.  I’ve even pulled my 2018 word for the year from this book.  It lodged itself inside my heart and left no room for discussing any other options no matter how hard I tried.

So here’s the first line.  Drumroll please…….

Mia wished her father could be with her in this moment, but she had to get through this on her own.

In return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you choose in the comments below.

Happy Reading,

First Line Friday – 12.8.17

First Line Fridays, Hoarding BooksWelcome to my first, First Line Friday post.  I’m excited to join in on the fun.  Each Friday I will share the first line of either a book I’m reading, have read or is in my TBR (to be read) pile.  Then in return, I hope you will share the first line from any book you want in the comments.

In the writing world, the first line is tremendously important, introducing you to the story.  It helps you settle in, knowing you have a fun adventure ahead.

So without further ado, here’s the book I’m starting off with: 

Too Far Down, by Mary Connealy:

Too Far Down, First Line Friday

February, 1881

“An explosion brought Cole Boden to his feet.”

This is book three in The Cimarron Legacy series.  There’s an overall plot carrying through the series and I’ve been waiting to see how it ends. I just might be staying up late tonight to find out!

Now it’s your turn! Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!

Then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating:
